Two weeks in Japan, hitting the highlights: start in Tokyo, take a shinkansen down to Kyoto, do a little temple-hopping, contemplate America’s past in Hiroshima and fly home.

I arrived in Tokyo on March 10, 2011. 22 hours later, the fifth-largest earthquake in recorded history struck off the coast of Tohoku.

After the earthquake, the power outages, numerous aftershocks and the unending cloud of Fukushima, I flew home.

A short trip but one worth at least a few posts:
